A Solo Exhibition by Haziq Syawal
1 - 14 July 2021
G13 Gallery is pleased to present an online exhibition, The Conversation by our local artist, Haziq Syawal. In this exhibition, Haziq presents his recent works that infused with the visual of momentariness of still life and landscape or what he calls the depiction of collective experience from places he goes. Known for his collages techniques, Haziq continues to embark his artistic practice in a new set of rules that focuses on the simplistic two-dimensional framework.
Grounded by the foundation of complementary colour theory, these visual realities are painted in a frame-in-frame setting where Haziq explores his understanding of cold-warm contrast colour through the juxtaposition of selected hues in-between frames. It conveys the idea of both separation and unification of the subjects within the canvases. The difference in chroma and value of colour in between the edges evoke a sensation of different narratives of these mementoes; frozen in his time-space.
Haziq’s ability to paint realistic images is shown in these beautifully rendered painting along with the contrasting choice of colour that is being separated and split apart through those framing. Creating an environment that is perplexing to the eyes, which raises the query on the non-existence missing pieces that would ‘complete’ this well-executed puzzle.
The Conversation by Haziq Syawal runs from 1 to 14 July 2021 at g13gallery.com
